Personal issues raised by Governor Kawira Mwangaza don’t concern us, EACC says

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has distanced itself from Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza’s remarks at a press conference on Friday, claiming that the allegations are false.

“The Commission takes great exception to the strange averments ensuing from the press conference alluding to alleged directives regarding the use, or otherwise, of the Governor’s official vehicles and residence by her spouse,” EACC said in a statement.

The Commission clarified that its subject letter to the Governor dated 19th October 2022 was strictly limited to allegations of conflict of interest, nepotism and abuse of office against her.

“The strange issues raised in the press conference were neither raised by the Commission nor were they part of the contents of its letter to the Governor. Such are not matters that concern the Commission,” EACC said.

The commission stated that it is guided by the law and does not get involved in personal or family matters, and that similar letters and advisories were sent to other Governors and State Officers who responded to the Commission without the theatrics seen in this case.

The Commission urged the public to disregard such allegations, which are clearly intended to trivialize and politicize the work of the Commission.

Meru County First Gentleman Murega Baicu sayid in the press conference that he is being harassed and criticized because he happens to be the husband of Mwangaza.

Baicu claimed that because he was not a state officer, he was not permitted to sleep in the governor’s official residence or share her vehicle.

EACC’s accusations on Governor Mwangaza

Mwangaza has been accused of conflict of interest by the EACC for directing County employees to participate in furthering the interests of Baite TV, a media station owned by his husband Murega Baicu.

She is also accused with failing to protect public resources for instructing the Meru Teaching and Referral Hospital to spend all income at source, which is a violation of Article 207 of the Constitution and Section 109 (2) of the Public Finance Management (PFM) Act, 2012.

She is further accused of nepotism for appointing Murega Baicu to a public office and her two sisters as personal assistants and security personnel.

Mwangaza is said to have conducted irregular recruitments that did not adhere to the established public service recruitment regulations.
